A Boot Up Constable Country
A Boot Up Constable Country
  • Description
  • Related

The Pixz Boot Up Series is fast becoming a phenomenon in local walks books that attract families and others to exploring the countryside in a leisurely way.

It includes short walks for those living in or visiting popular areas of the country, written by those who know the area well. They provide a healthy hour or two of exercise, exploring parts of Britain’s countryside that the casual visitor might otherwise miss, pointing out interesting features along the way. These are perfect walks for families.

The River Stour gently meanders its way through the rolling Suffolk countryside. This wonderful river flows east from Sipsey Bridge four miles from its source in Cambridgeshire, along 8 miles in Suffolk and forms the county boundary between Suffolk and Essex all the way to Cattawade, its length totalling 68 miles.

In earlier times this mighty river was used as a canal with barges drawn by horses along the towpath which ran along all of the river’s length. The area has lost little of its romance, and walks in this book start from Bures crossing from Suffolk to Essex walking in the footsteps of John Constable, the famous landscape painter, who gives his name to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, affectionately known as ‘Constable Country’.

The 10 walks included are centred on: BURES AND MOUNT BURES CASTLE • BURES AND ARGER FEN • WORMINGFORD • NAYLAND, WISSINGTON AND LITTLE HORKESLEY • STOKE BY NAYLAND AND POLSTEAD • STRATFORD ST MARY AND HIGHAM • DEDHAM AND THE RIVER STOUR • EAST BERGHOLT AND FLATFORD MILL • CATTAWADE AND THE RIVER STOUR • THE TATTINGSTONE WONDER AND STOUR ESTUARY.

Alan Casey specialises in producing DVD video's and photographs of walking and related subjects. He walks every step of the way on each of the routes he describes, seeking out the best bits that he hopes you, the walker, will also enjoy. He loves to feature unusual sites and buildings as well as the wildlife seen on the walk. Alan’s photography has been sold worldwide and has been featured in many magazines and newspapers.
